Our Heritage

Handcrafting Leather Goods Since 1917

Founded in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1917, Korchmar is a family-owned manufacturer of quality leather briefcases, travel bags and accessories for business professionals.

A Legacy Rooted in Excellence

Korchmar’s legacy is rooted in excellence and innovation in leather craftsmanship. From the very beginning, founder Max Korchmar sought to create the finest leather goods in the world, initially handcrafting leather visors for automobile headlamps, and then expanding into leather business cases in the 1920s.

A Family Business, Four Generations Strong

The Korchmar tradition of excellence spans four generations – Max Korchmar’s son, grandson, and now his great grandchildren have remained committed to creating world-class leather bags and accessories that meet the demands of discerning professionals.
